The group voted to maintain the current practice of allowing documenters to choose which form of English will be used in their documentation. If DIG eventually starts translating documentation into other languages, DIG can reconsider and possibly create dual English versions, but that would depend on having interested volunteers.
The group thought this might be outside the scope of DIG. If anyone is interested in pooling money to fund a particular piece of documentation, it might be best to post a message to the general, documentation or development list to see if there is interest. It may also be something for the Governance Committee to consider in the future.
DIG still needs volunteers to serve as Admin / Development Content Coordinator and Style Coordinator. (see: DIG Roles & Participants List)
Jenny Turner (reports) will be seeking volunteers at Wednesday's reports meeting. Kathy (OPAC/end user) had no updates.
Karen raised the idea of forming cooperative working groups around topics that multiple people might be working on or interested in working on. She will bring this idea to the documentation list where a larger audience can participate in the discussion.
